    INFP and ENFP relationships

    The dynamic at question is the INFP/ENFP relationship. If an ENFP came into your life and swept you off your feet, how would it go? How well do you suppose it would work?

    Some fundamentals: What are some short term problems or long term problems? What are the advantages of this dynamic? Is it a strong coupling? What could potentially weaken or strengthen the bond? Do you believe that any specific gender with a particular personality would make a difference? How compatible are the two "love languages?" Do they fulfil/satisfy each others needs and wants?

    Would you ever date an ENFP? Why or why not?

    Share experiential knowledge as well as theoretical. I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic! I need more of you dreamers in my life..

    One of you will need to do the TJ-side of things.

    As in, get each other organized and... Well, whatever else TJs are good at.

    *Waves*

    Hello. Welcome!
    I have not dated an ENFP, though I realise that I do have some ENFPs in my life, and yes, they are fun individuals to be around with.

    INFP ENFP
    Introverted Feeling (Fi) Extroverted iNtuition (Ne)
    Extroverted iNtuition (Ne) Introverted Feeling (Fi)
    Introverted Sensing (Si) Extroverted Thinking (Te)
    Extroverted Thinking (Te) Introverted Sensing (Si)

    For me, it's going to be theorectical output. Okay, let me predict in my crystal ball.... IF you and ME dated. ;)



    Advantages:
    -Loving Fi. Finding out that you are the same in thoughts on romanticism is pretty nice.

    -You also do not express your love physically like hugs and things, but possibly verbalise it a lot more. Which is okay. I can stand that.

    -I like it that you will get me mentally, even without myself expressing verbally what is happening

    -You will be able to deduce how bad I feel even in a social situation, you will have a very astute social aware, which I like

    -You will always be emotionally supportive, i will love this about you

    -you can also often create a loving environment where individuals can indeed excel themselves in and to express themselves

    -you're a very poetic person and I will like this, you appreciate the arts too

    -you're very kind to people, and that will include my family too, whether they are good or bad, you won't judge them
    (and i thank you for this)

    -we will have fun teasing and bickering, but if u did not know when to draw the line then i will hate you (we need to figure this line out)

    -you are an absolutely great listener and empath





    Disadvantages:
    -You may put others above me. Which I will hate.

    -You may forget to fight my corner especially if there is a more important wider point which helps many other individuals to calm the peace, and you will shove me aside and myself as your gf. I will hate this. LOL... (To overcome this, we MUST not ever debate with everybody or in a large group.)

    -we will possibly always argue and never come to a decision cos we both have P. (Possible resolution is to have periodic brainstorm and discussions of our goals as a couple)

    -you may sometimes shoot your mouth out a tad toooo much, you may say the most inappropiate things which I find shocking, even if it is to make someone else feel better

    -you may want more attention than I can offer, and you may want to go out all the time when I may want to stay at home (we need to work on some kind of routine here, or some kind of method where win-win is achieved)

    -you may also side with those who you think are deserving when i do not think the same for them

    -you need to know your priorities and whether you can also put your partner as important on your life list as I will do too

    -you won't be able to give me that sense of "i shall fight for you" kind of mentality... cos you're not built that way

    -i will get jealous cos well... you are sometimes such a people person that you can possibly be too friendly to other females too (this is whereby you need to learn to draw a boundary line somewhere)

    -sometimes i may know or come to lose a sense of trust in you...cos i cant tell whether you are for real cos we are too alike

    -long-term if we both do not focus, then we may actually repeat bad habits which may hurt each other more than it is nurturing

    I find ENFP girls very attractive .. and I think a relationship with one would be great .. the question is how do *they* perceive us?

    I promise, not all of us ENFPs are that social and/or socially distractible!

    Personally, I'm an incredibly picky extrovert (unless I find you fascinating I will find it incredibly draining to interact with you) and I tend to do my socializing in spurts. Give me a night or two out with my friends and some time to explore/bounce my ideas off other people in class or at a coffee shop and I'm usually good for the week. I sometimes cringe at how flakey us ENFPs are portrayed as! haha...Yes, we may be somewhat haphazard when it comes to time management and staying organized, but when we are with a partner we value we are fully capable of committing and (at least in my case), when we do, we will almost always put you (and the others we love) first!

    *I guess I should add the caveat that I'm not a very strongly expressed E (I'm very balanced on the E/I function), so perhaps I'm not the most typical ENFP. Maybe that's why I don't relate to the extreme social distractibility and flakiness. Or maybe I just find INFPs so utterly endearing that I can't bear the idea of flaking out on one of them haha.

    I could see that relationship working out very well. I think there are a lot of ENFP & INFP couples. Of course the main argument against it would be: Who will remember to pay the bills? Who will care about cleaning the house? Who will keep a calendar of all our appointments? But, in my eyes, all that is pretty inconsequential when it comes to the fundamentals of a happy relationship. If you click well and are truly happy together, all the minor details of your life will fall into place.

    I agree with this completely.

    Who says true love has to be well-organized or orderly! Or pay its bills on time!haha
